      The tax levy cap legislation continues to effect school district budgets, including the 2016-2017 school year (this proposed budget).

      It is important to note that the cap is on the growth in the tax levy (the amount of taxes collected to run the district) and not a cap on tax rates or individual tax bills. Tax bills will fluctuate, up or down, in amounts that may exceed 2%.

      The information presented here is designed to provide residents with the components of the calculation, the actual calculation for Carle Place UFSD. Changes to the maximum tax levy amount may have a direct impact on the proposed budgeted expenditures, absent any additional revenue sources (i.e. state aid).

      The tax levy cap also sets budget approval requirements. A proposed budget with a resulting tax levy at or below the cap requires only a simple majority for approval. A proposed budget that exceeds the cap requires a 60% majority of voters for approval.
